Winged eyeliner is having a moment, if you haven’t noticed. I’ve seen it everywhere, and it’s a trick I get asked about a great deal. This time I used all Ruby Kisses products on my eyes, and if you haven’t heard of them yet, it’s high time that you do. This lower priced line gives seriously professional results. I discovered them this past year at The Makeup Show, and have been eagerly waiting for them to come to my area so that I can add to my collection, but unfortunately I have not yet seen it here. I keep looking, though, because the products really are terrific.
For this look, I began with the 24/7 Eye Shadow Magic Primer, spread over entire lid. Next I applied the Ultra Brilliant Eye Shadow Duo in 06, which is two shades of a neutral brown. Lighter color over the lid, darker shade on the crease. On the upper lashline only, I applied Never Smudge Liquid Liner in brown, moving from the inner eye to the outer eye, flicking up on the end. With liquid liner, it’s easy to make your line thicker, so always start off thin, and build it up. I applied Big Lash Mascara as a final touch, about three coats.
Overall, it’s a simple look, and one that is fairly easy to recreate. Do you wear winged eyeliner? What is your favorite way to apply it?
